And the funny thing are conversations like this (traslated into English):

Support: "Press the Control key."
   User: "There is no Control key on my keyboard."
Support: "Oh, of course, you have a German keyboard - it's the 'Steuerung' key then."
   User: "I don't see a 'Steuerung' key here."
Support: "It's the one labeled 'Strg'."
   User: "Ah, you mean the 'String' key!"

I'd say we leave it with "Plugin" ;-)
